I'm a first-time builder, looking to make a solid gaming rig for use in my entertainment center. I'm looking at using a FX-6300 for my CPU, and a Gigabyte Geforce GTX 650 2GB for my video card (I'd go for a 660, but I'm trying to keep my cost low, and a $200 card is just too much for me).
My question is twofold; should I consider overclocking the CPU, and if so, will I need an after-market CPU cooler, or will the stock AMD one suffice? I'm putting the rig in a Cooler Master HAF XB ATX case, to give you an idea of what the rig's overall airflow situation will be like.
